Had fun today,even with a really close call with the edge.. it almost bit the dirt kamikaze style. Tryed a couple different things with the edge and the slick,after that i played the weed game.. I use to play this with my typhoon 3d but the slick isnt z-foam so im a bit more careful with the slick and dont dive into the weeds then pull up
. Its always a good day when the planes come back not needing repair or changing set ups so i fired up the grill and threw on some skirt steak,flank steak and chicken.. made fresh salsa yesterday to.. the good stuff(cilantro,broiled tomatoes,onion,jalapeno,lime.. and just enough salt)
. Flying And Grillin Rock!
Went to the local shop to pick up some smaller pinion gears for the brushless set up i installed on the slash. They had a mini e-revo there and did a demo out back.. if your a rc car guy or gal you gotta see this,its like a mini savage flux on steroids
My roots in rc have always been with offroad cars,will probally always have one no matter where my rc flying ends up. Its my first brushless set up in one,been doing the brushless thing with planes and helis a few years now but wish they had brushless and lipos decades ago when i was racing them
. It was geared a little high but i'll pick up some spur gears maybe by the weekend
Got the edge back flying,flew two power set ups this weekend in it.. next weekend should be a lot of fun
Got it repaired
. Its never fun though having a plane go down when the battery ejects and theres nothing you can do to try and save it,after the repair i changed power set ups to,went to a lighter set up and auw is 4lbs with a zippy flightmax 4s 20c 3000 pack and the torque 2814-720 with a apc 14x7 for over 800 watts. Gonna fly it later today if the weather agrees.
First time chasing this dudes plane with onboard video,the camera was fun on the trucks to
Just got the camera last week,heres video from the first flight inside the slick.. looks better after you go to youtube and click the hq button.
The slick,trex,truggy and my buddys t-28 4 stroke nitro plane and his slash.. really mixed up the rc today and had fun.. think i'll put a hook on the tail of the slick and try and make his traxxas slash really fly next time(oh and killed a big nasty bug with the trex 600 lol) Had to wipe his guts off my blades after i got home
